INDONESIA ~Ujung Kulon National Park-UNESCO~

Received three wonderful cards today! Two amazing whale cards for my collection and a really nice nature multiview of Indonesia and it is an UNESCO site. Also with great Year of the Tiger stamps....

It is Indonesia's first proposed national park and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991 for containing the largest remaining lowland rainforest in Java. It is also one of only two homes of the critically endangered Javan Rhinoceros. A population of fifty to sixty live in Ujung. The park protects 57 rare species of plant. The 35 species of mammal include Banteng, Silvery Gibbon, Javan Lutung, Crab-eating Macaque, Leopard, Java Mouse-deer and Rusa Deer. There are also 72 species of reptiles and amphibians, and 240 species of birds.
